Seekers of sweetness and light need to look elsewhere.
The piece starts out with a soft, deep drone like the hum/roar of distant engines - barely audible and quick to fade from consciousness. The music is so quiet that you really must have headphones on or turn it up a bit to hear the subtle elements that glide past your ears in blocks of slow moving, menacing sound. Perhaps this is the dominant idea of the title. Kafkaesque: "marked by surreal distortion and often a sense of impending danger". Make no mistake - this is a very dark piece. It never really changes from the mood established in the first few minutes, but then maybe it doesn't need to. A sense of a dark, foreboding place is established and carried through from beginning to end. 4 stars for perfect consistency and execution.

This is more relaxing and less dark than most drone pieces. Good work and excellent music for reading, studying, playing puzzle games and so on. Nice!
